IS WASHINGTON THE ONLY SITTING PRESIDENT TO VISIT THE U.S. MINT?

In his "Joys of Collecting" column in the March 13, Dave Bowers
asks "Is there any record of any sitting president besides
Washington ever visiting a United States Mint?"

I believe the answer is yes, as I recall reading of such a visit
while doing some research on Joseph Saxton, who served at the
Mint from 1837-1843.  President Martin Van Buren visited the mint
and was shown, among other things, a die-engraving pantograph
machine in operation.  Can our readers point to any other
Presidential visits?  -Editor.
